split


Description:

[ Version ( since = "1.2" ) ]
public GlyphItem split (string text, int split_index)

Modifies this to cover only the text after split_index, and returns a new item that covers the text before split_index that used to be in this.

You can think of split_index as the length of the returned item. split_index may not be 0, and it may not be greater than or equal to the length of this (that is, there must be at least one byte assigned to each item, you can't create a zero-length item).

This function is similar in function to split (and uses it internally.)

Parameters:

this

a `PangoItem`

text

text to which positions in this apply

split_index

byte index of position to split item, relative to the start of the item

Returns:

the newly allocated item representing text before split_index, which should be freed with free.
